Louis Leterrier summons new magic heist film Now You See Me

Louis Leterrier is a pretty polarizing figure around these parts, as not many of you were a fan of his work on CLASH OF THE TITANS, though I have met a few fans of his HULK attempt.

The director now has a new project in the works, magical heist move called NOW YOU SEE ME. Yes, you heard that right, the film follows a team of FBI agents in pursuit of a gang of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances. Uhhh. Hmmm.

The script is being written by STAR TREK duo Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, so that might put some minds at ease, but I think I'm going to have to hear more about this before I stop rolling my eyes at that logline. I did love THE PRESTIGE and OCEAN'S ELEVEN, so making a sandwich out of the two of them might work. Or it might be like combining spaghetti and tuna fish, which are good separately, but not so much together.

Does a magical heist thriller sound like it would be up your alley or no?

Extra Tidbit: I'm in if one of the "illusionists" is Will Arnett.

Sounds like Oceans 11 meets a David Mamet thriller. And if that description fits, then I wanna see it. So long as the tricks are relatively logical in execution.

Ricky Jay would make this movie worth seeing.

Liked his work on The Incredible Hulk, the underrated "Unleashed" starring Jet Li. Hell, even Transporter 2 was great over-the-top fun. So hope this sounds interesting enough for me.

Sounds like it has potential.

I am one of the fans of Louis' The Incredible Hulk movie. I thought it was great actually. Never saw Clash it didn't interest me because it felt too hollywood but i do believe you guys did an article on how Louis' vision for Clash was much different than what came out which was shit from everything ive heard. But i dont think this means he's a bad director.

This sounds awesome if it's taken seriously. I liked his take on the Hulk and even though Clash of the Titans was mostly garbage I feel that some of that had to be studio interference.

I think we should at least be grateful that it's an ORIGINAL idea rather than another recycled re-make of something. I'll save the judgement for the trailer.

Hmm That does sound like an interesting idea. Certainly something different from the usual heist with a couple of guys pulling off a job that screwing each other over for a bigger piece of the pie though I have no doubt it could end up like that. Then again could be worse.
